The following Union Army units and commanders fought in the Battle of Fort Stedman (March 25, 1865) during the Petersburg Campaign of the American Civil War. Even though the IX Corps was the principal Union participant between 4:30 and 8:00 a.m., the time period which centrally defines this Battle, desultory skirmishing was officially reported by elements of the II, V and VI Corps and produced casualties in these Corps on the day of battle. Order of battle is compiled from the official reports which observed casualties.[1] The Confederate order of battle is listed separately.
